DEEP – Vol. 1

DEEP – Vol. 1
Self released - 2013
Stoner, Doom
Rated: ***

Hailing from Gorizia, Italy, DEEP is a new Stoner/Doom band with a new LP and another in the works. Vol. 1 starts off as a thick, plodding menace setting the stage for what appears to be an all-doom procession straight up Sleep’s Holy Mountain, chanting vocals and all. Before loading the bong however, prepare, DEEP quickly barrel back down the mountain straight through the Italian desert (there are deserts in Italy right?) with a number “Let It Roll In” that amps up the pace (not to mention the fuzz) and rips in pure, high octane desert rock fashion. The remainder of the album firmly places itself between these two opposites (you can load that bong now) and if that “Fuzz” sound is your thing, you’ll be happy to know that sound dominates the recording. Further highlights include the monstrous groove on “Hyperventilation Revelation” and the fist-pumping closer “Sonic Mantra”. If you’re a frequent flier in both the Stoner/Doom and Desert Rock skies, give this a shot.
